Flotilla sailing from Lefkada, where everyone can enjoy

Flotilla sailing from Lefkada, where everyone can enjoy

Lefkada is known for the beautiful green coastlines of the Ionian Sea. This is immediately noticeable when you are in a beautiful bay, because the contrast with the turquoise blue water is fantastic! And there are plenty of bays, along with picturesque harbours, everything is easily accessible, so you can quickly alternate if desired, nice and easy. Flotilla sailing in Lefkada is perfect for anyone who can sail reasonably well in the Netherlands and would like to discover Greece. Ideal for scaling up from inland waters to the sea. This way you become familiar with anchoring in Greece and you also learn something during your sailing holiday in Greece. A BBQ on the beach or a Greek evening with food, drinks and dancing? All ingredients are present for a successful flotilla sailing holiday on the Ionian Sea!

Complete freedom during the Meganisi flotilla

Because the weather here is often calm and the distances are fairly short, this flotilla is ideal for families with children. During a sailing day you therefore have enough time to regularly take a swimming or lunch break. You may be taking part in a group holiday, but so you have all the freedom and there are no social obligations. We are happy to advise you on the best place to anchor around Meganisi during your sunny sailing holiday in Greece.

Sailing climate of the Ionian Sea

The Ionian Sea has an excellent climate for sailing in the summer. Summers in this area are long, hot and dry. The seawater has a pleasant temperature early in the year.

The English Flotilla Guidance

Of course, a successful sailing holiday depends on the weather, the sun, the sea and the flotilla guidance. In addition to conviviality, safety is of course very important during the sailing holiday. During the Meganisi flotilla, professional English-speaking guidance is available on the mother ship who are always ready for mooring and anchoring. They also plot the route (with input from the participants) and keep an eye on the weather for everyone. There is no fixed flotilla guide in the weeks offered, so that can differ. However, they are all eager to give you a great experience in Greece.
